Monument Landmark
Looking out over the bay of Jounieh toward Beirut, Our Lady of Lebanon attracts Christian and Muslim pilgrims from around the world. Standing atop a majestic spiral staircase/stone base, the 8 m (26.2 ft) bronze statue of the Virgin Mary encloses a monumental 100 seat-shrine located underneath. Ride the cable car to the top of the hill, located 650 m (2132.5 ft) above sea level, then climb the sloping 19th-century stairway to the base of the statue, where a panoramic view of the city rewards your efforts.

  • If you can make your way all the way to the top, the view alone is BREATHTAKING. I will definitely come to visit Our Lady of Lebanon every time I visit home. I also was able to purchase a mini ceramic Our Lady statue from the souvenir store. Amazing experience. Love it and will be back again.
  • For me it's the best place on earth. Very quite place where one can pray in peace. Breathtaking view from the top of our Lady. Night visit is highly recommended
  • Pretty nice area, and great environment. However, didn't feel very spiritual and too commercial. However, still a great area to spend time with family and friends.
